Dear Mr. Steenrod:
Mr. Marston thinks he can pick up a copy of a book that was burned in Liberty for 10/10. I enclose check for $2.00 which may be correct… I want the book for a few directions for dyeing feather in it, but must have the Second Edition, as these directions are not in the First Edition.

It became so bitter cold last night, and I had to get up so often that I felt badly this morning. My bedroom is cold as Greenland now. I hope you will be very careful of that cold. The “grip” that knocked me began with congestion of the right lung and it was two months before it was entirely well
